Lesson 1 - Our Ocean

Our first lesson (27 minutes) wants to highlight the importance of the Ocean for our planet. Anne uses the stories and the symbology of four of her installations created around the planet to bring to life UNESCO’s “7 Principles of Ocean literacy.”  The lecture concludes with her beautiful short documentary One Ocean.

 

Anne urges each of us to make a choice: CHOOSE THE OCEAN!

Lesson 2 - Endangered Species

Our second lesson (18 minutes) recounts why we have entered the sixth mass extinction. Anne uses the stories and the symbology of four of her most powerful installations on endangered species to show us what we are about to lose.

 

“Today we have the power to decide who lives or not on our Planet.”

 

Lesson 3 - Pollution & Solutions | Part I

Our third lesson (16mn) recounts the impact and extent of the damage caused by our human footprint to the planet and all species. But today we can transform such a big problem into an opportunity!

 

“We have a choice and we need to decide now. Do we want our archaeology to be trash?”

Lesson 4 - The future of Glaciers

Our fourth lesson (20 minutes) shows us how much the world of glaciers has changed and how Anne’s art has evolved with it. Scientist say we are reaching a tipping point. We need a new individual and collective approach to save them, but we already have the solutions.

 

“The survival of ALL of us wherever we live on this planet depends on our glaciers. Find out why! “
